Discussion

Winter will put on an amazing display this week and here is a quick summary: frigid cold this morning with temperatures near zero will be followed by significant snowfall tonight and early Tuesday; snow showers and snow squalls should take place late Wednesday with additional small accumulations possible, and that will be followed by record-challenging cold on Thursday and Friday.

Today starts off on the frigid side near zero degrees and temperatures this afternoon will not even reach the 20 degree mark. Snow will break out this evening likely in the 6-9pm time period and continue heavily at times right into Tuesday morning. The total snowfall accumulation range in the Philly metro region by mid-day Tuesday will likely be 4-7 inches, and the Jersey Shore should receive 6-9 inches. This snowfall will have serious implications on the Tuesday morning commute, school openings, etc. Another Arctic blast arrives late Wednesday likely accompanied by snow showers/snow squalls and additional small accumulations, and then record-challenging cold on Thursday and Friday which may even surpass this morning's fierce cold for its severity.
